We have changed the pricing model for this event: The fee is for one board, and, due to feedback, we learned that some are interested in making cutting boards as couples.
We support this! The pricing is now "per board", and each board can be made by one person or a couple.
Thi should be a crafty way to make your own memento of this happy season!
Handmake, and customize with woodburning, a cutting board for use and show during the holidays!
Winter holidays should be festive, as in FEAST-ive. Delicacies need a place to sit while and after they are being sliced, and you'll have just the thing!
Learn woodworking skills, gain experience, and take home an attractive tray. This tray can be used with delicious cheese, sausages, and other delicacies.
Making your own superior items is great fun, and such items make wonderful gifts that mean more because they were made personally by you.
Freesider Dave Alvarez (a skilled cabinet maker for over a decade) is giving a class on how to turn a nice piece of wood into an attractive cutting board of your own.
Freesider Leah Wilson will help you add personalized details to your board utilizing either a hand held wood burner & stencils, or a laser engraver depending on preference. We’ll help you make memorable designs no matter your artistic ability or technical skill.
The class will explain basic safety first. Students will get experience using woodworking tools such as
- hand sander
- wood burner
- (optionally) laser cutter (as etcher)
and materials such as
- premium wood
- finish stripper
- food safe mineral oil
By the end of the class, each attendee will have a finished cutting board, ready for use during holiday festivities!
The size of the class is limited to six, to reduce bottlenecks.
